Did you happen to catch OU fans reaction to this? OU fans were already down on Lebby, this won't help, at all. I think that Lebby's explanation is perfectly fine but if you believe his head coach and his athletic director, that they had no idea, you have to think there will be some repercussions for that. Even if the message is "hey Jeff, you can't have him on the sideline anymore" that's an issue if his stance is "he's family and I want him around." Again, I'm fine with his explanation but the follow up from Guerin Emig is interesting to me because Art has never been caught on the sideline, wearing gear, after one of Kendall's games, or any of Lebby's games at Ole Miss for that matter.

People wouldn't even let this dude coach 1A high school football, this isn't just going to go away.

Clams I think the answer to your question is when he shows contrition, he can maybe start the process of seeking redemption with some one, anyone, allowing him the grace to do so. He and literally everyone involved never saying sorry or even expressing that they could have and should have done things differently is the exact reason why redemption will never come.

I don't see Lebby making it to 2024 with the Sooners.

Art looks quite gaunt. I wonder if there's something going on with him.

Either Lebby is saying Castiglione is full of crap or he doesn't care what Castiglione has to say.

This sounds like an SEC problem.

The biggest non-story story of the weekend.  OU regularly invites Barry Switzer and his players, Joe Mixon, Baker Mayfield, and on and on.  Fans are faking outrage because their offense isn't all-world and they still think they should be winning nattys (even though we're going on 23 years without one)

I was thinking he looked very much like an oklahoma fan, not that your description doesn't fit that, just "generic oklahoma fan from Ardmore OK who just got back from Lake Texhoma for the Labor day weekend" kinda vibes.

I think the best part of this is the internal turmoil at OU.  I know we don't play them but having them collapse would be fun.

Right! Some people keep focusing on what they perceive to be false outrage from fans and media, which is weird, while completely ignoring that Lebby clearly did this very public thing, even though his athletic director and head coach told him not to do it and were clearly pissed that he did.
